Hi All Was wondering if someone could suggest links to pics of quite bright red thick worm looking things accidentally pumped up when yabby pumping on the GC in Coombabah Creek. Next time I get one I will take a pic. I have looked and it doesn't match any worm I have been able to find. Also this pic of what my companion thought was a wrasse (also can't find). But very very pretty. He was about 10cm long and caught on the GC Broadwater. Cheers Kat
Hi All Today's fishing report. I wasn't planning on fishing today - slept in and then procrastination set in and didn't do what I was supposed to. Later in the day I had committed to babysitting my nephew about 2pm and then take him to a swimming lesson at 4.30pm. Anyway, being obsessed I had tried on previous occasions to get my nephew to come fishing with me but he wasn't at all interested. I thought we could go for a walk to the local park and feed the fish. I said it would be fun watching the fish go mad for the bread. I took my outfit and the little bit of leftover squid and some bread. We headed to the local boat ramp me walking/jogging my nephew riding his new bike, arriving about 3pm. We fed the fish some bread and floated a small wire hook some tackle shop guy sold me for whiting baited with bread. Thought my Nephew could catch a small Butter Bream (I have been told that is what they are by a boy who fishes there). The tide was at the last of the run in. Apparently it is a big tide at the moment. Anyway the bread and hook didn't give us much joy so I decided to bait the hook with the squid and float it. Within 10 min he had caught his first two fish!!!! What a great Aunty I am . My sister rang to remind me that he had a swimming lesson at 4.30pm. It was 4.08 and I was a 20min walk from home with no carseat in my car and swimming was 15 min drive. Anyway, my sis picked him up and off they went. I thought I would carry on fishing by this time we were at the beginning of the run-out. I tied on a sinker but left the tiny hook on and baited up with a little more squid. I got a heavy bite and hook up and before I could think he was under some rocks - I think. But it also felt like a snag. Anyway, I kept a little pressure on and just waited quietly. He came out from under where he was hiding and still had quite a lot of weight but didn't fight like a Bream. Started reeling in and then pretty sure the tiny hook was ripped from wherever it was. Line was light again and I was very disappointed. Baited up again and within minutes had another bite, a small fight and landed my first Moses Perch - under but also pretty. The two young boys who had joined me at the boat ramp identified it the moment it was out of the water. They said it was a pity about the size because apparently they are great to eat. The fish were off the bite by now and I didn't really want to walk back through the bush in the dark so I headed home. Those hooks are pretty mean. Cheers Kat
I had a very early start in a system I fish about once a year. Lot's of portage and paddling across crystal clear pools and under electric fences to reach some bass holding water. With the huge amount of weed around jig spinners swum just on top of the greenery got the attention of a good number of small bass. Further up the creek the weed settled down and I could concentrate on fishing the bases of trees disappearing into the water. This has to be the best way to clear your head.
